Pardon me, but "an" historic is correct. As any grammarian will tell you, "an" precedes words starting with a vowel or an h.

in Greek there is no "h" but if the breath mark ' proceeds a vowel it is an "h" sound

so it is not Hellenic but rather 'ellenic

but there is no soft "c" , rather a hard "k" sound. so Caeser would be kiser -long i

..that is, certain words beginning with h, or silent h, such as "honor" and, in this case, "historic."
